Since the release of their self-titled debut studio album in 2001, indie-rock band The National has put out five critically acclaimed albums, four of which landed on NME’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
On September 8, The National released their latest full-length record, Sleep Well Beast.
In anticipation of their new record, we visited lead singer Matt Berninger at his house in Culver City, California to talk about his songwriting and recording processes, what it takes to be an artist, and chat about—well—some random things, like his first job ever as a golf cart driver.
Check out clips from our interview below!
